en WordPress.com Forums › CSS Customization Preventing Email Spam Author Posts November 17, 2006 at 12:31 am #38644 bonlouMember I would like to allow the visitors to my blog to be able to contact me personally via email. If I put my email address on my pages will I attract a lot of spam? If so, then is there some other way? Thanks. Bonnie November 17, 2006 at 12:35 am #38904 drmikeMember [Moved to support] Yup. I would suggest displaying it as such: myemailaddress ( at ) mydomain ( dot ) tld It’s a pain but *shrug* what can you do. Another thing you can do is just set up a throw away email address at Yahoo and use that. Hope this helps, -drmike November 17, 2006 at 12:48 am #38910 raincoasterMember I just set up such an email address and since I did I’ve gotten 22 PAGES of regular comment spam and not one spam email to that address, so I’d say if you spell it out like Dr. Mike suggests you won’t have a big problem.
